Project description

Attention focusing helps the human auditory system to extract relevant information from the multitude of sounds that surround it. In modern sensor networks a similar overload of data is observed. In this PhD research, knowledge on the biological system will be increased through modeling and this knowledge will be transferred to sensor networks.
